today? >> reporter: you know, luke, what you brought up about ben bernanke was really interesting because the market knows the s fiscal cliff was out there. that's what it's been reacting to. when bernanke spoke yesterday, it spooked the markets again. they know it's ut there but just the idea of it being brought up, people saying what a big deal it is reminds them once again this is a huge issue that has not yet been solved. this morning it looks like we are opening slightly weaker, down by maybe 20 points for the dow. a lot of things that people have been watching and waiting with congress out of session heading into the rest of the week, there is no real sense that any deal will be reached soon, but we know they're getting back next week and that's what the market has been keying off of every single day. some economic numbers as you mentioned. usually we get the jobless claims on thursday. we get them today because of the holiday. claims came in at 410,000. that was a drop of 41,000 from the week before, but it's still an elevated level above 400,000 and you can thank superstor

jobs and presumably believe that deep cuts won't cost any jobs. >> avery, you mentioned ben bernanke and the policies that an obama presidency would keep in place because it would assure that ben bernanke is still the fed chairman. and that presumes, though, that the policy of keeping interest rates so low is in fact encouraging of an economy that is growing. i mean, do you think it does have that sort of impact where you can say that particular plank of the obama presidency will make sure that the environment is good for growth? >> look, i don't believe that qe3 is some page bullet here. after all, interest rates are already pretty low, and you're not really stimulating much additional bank lending through it. but nevertheless, the alternative, for example, if i look at a potential romney appointee, someone for example like john taylor from stanford, he has been advocating moving off the zero interest rate policy earlier. and i think that would be a mistake. you have a housing sector that is now showing some signs of life. and i think those will be critical to getting the economy moving

getting worse. >> alan greenspan says slow down. we also heard from ben bernanke this week. listen to what he said. >> unfortunately, while some tightening of the terms of mortgage credit was certainly an appropriate response to the developments of earlier accesses, the pendulum appears to have swung too far, restraining the pace of recovery in the housing sector. >> i completely agree with chairman bernanke. i think the housing recovery is going on despite problems in the mortgage market. now, he's been very critical about tightening of credit, but that may very well be, at least potentially, a cloud that could open up. >> this combination of low interest rates is probably a combination you won't see for a long time. the only thing i'm wrong on is the interest rates have actually gone lower. but now the feds say their rates will stay low until mid 2015 before starting to go up. it does take that urgency out of my argument that you better buy a house now. >> absolutely. i think that's one of the key issues. and if you look at sort of all of what i call happy housing news, all of the m

a holiday week where it's been thin. my problem with what he said was is that ben bernanke said if we go off the fiscal cliff, he might not be able to impact those head winds in a meaningful way. many of his programs the last couple years haven't addressed the head winds of slowness in a meaningful way. many people down here totally agree. but i think that a tweet by bill gross sums it up best. the tweet is something like this. it said, well, now ben bernanke is acknowledging what we've said is a new normal arriving. i guess it's here. i would agree with that. i think most people i deal with never expected a 3.5%, 4% gdp handle for a long time. the markets reacted very differently. if you look at an interest rate chart, interest rates were virtually ignored and are actually moving higher, which doesn't fit a weaker economy. many people think that would happen in treasuries today and more european related. looks like greece is going to get their money. >> if you're putting your money, rick, on lower potential gdp, being in the 2% range, i think that's kpexactly what you would do. yo

leaders for signs of a break in the fiscal cliff negotiations. federal reserve chairman ben bernanke says tight fisted banks are keeping the nation's economy from getting better. he says many credit worthy borrowers are onable to get loans to buy new homes. he says banks lending rules have slumped too far the other way after the lax mortgage lending that led to the financial crisis. the red ink gets deeper for the postal service. the agency reported a record loss of almost $16 billion for the fiscal year that ended on september 30th. the postal service is not taxpayer funded. it blames much of its problems on congress for forcing it to pay a fund for future retiree health benefits. fedex and united parcel service are the target of a federal crackdown against the illegal sale of prescription pain killers. u.p.s. is likely to settle the case but fedex will fight any charges. the investigation is part of a wider federal effort against companies that aided illegal drug sales from online pharmacies. the hiring picture is expected to be mixed in the coming year for college graduates. a michigan
